In order to change our lives, we need to change our thinking. We need to let go of what we think is the way and allow God’s presence to be the way we think, feel and live. We need to realize that we (our ego) are no the ones doing the work.
As we allow ourselves to be open to the spirit we find that it is God within who is doing the work. God within does the work that we are all called to do. In our selfless service we experience the power of unconditional love.
You are the presence of God.
You are love made manifest in the world.
You are god’s gift to the world.
You have God-given gifts and talents to share with the world that no one but you can share.
You are a unique emanation of God.
There is no one else like you.
You are beautiful.
“ Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
The soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar,
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing coulds of glory do we come
From God, Who is our HOME.”
From Wordsworth’s Intimations of Immortality
